Re: [Harp-L] amplification question

I use the same amp for both. I'd love to have dedicated amps for both, but I can't afford it. You can get by with a smaller amp for either if your amps are being mic'd into the board.

The amp I use has two separate input channels, and I have a different pre-amp tube in the one I use for harp (lower gain). So far it has been plenty loud without the PA for both uses.

I've been playing for many years, but I'm finally getting toward amplified
harp now that I'm finally learning guitar, too. My question is whether a
harmonica through a microphone would tend to need a more powerful amp than
an electric guitar. I'm picturing two scenarios, one in which it is just a
guitar and harp, each through an amp, and a second in which there is a
larger band (bass, drums, maybe piano). I imagine that the answer may still
be "it depends," but generally, which instrument needs the more powerful
amp? Does it depend on the harp mic or the type of guitar?
